of the middle eastern studies program here at george mason. professor, how would you describe syria's economy as far as its structure? >> guest: syria's economy went through a number of changes. it went from a centralized state hood economy to a mixed economy that involved centralized aspects and some market aspects, but not in the manner that actually allowed the market to be efficient at all. >> host: when did this change occur from centralized to mixed? >> guest: most of the countries, the late developing countries, after the post colonial development, they had a period where they actually had to involve the masses in order to gain support and legitimacy. when this process, for a variety of reasons, began to create problems for the regimes and power and when external support and pressure for some of the regimes and for some of the directions that were available at the time in terms of moving towards the market economy around the 1980s took place, you saw a lot of these third world regimes or the global house begin to move from a state centered economy to a more market oriented economy, and
on the new collaborative economy. we're interested in it because it has aspects that have piqued our interest, about hoour environment, how to improve life for more people, how to make an expensive city more affordable to more people, how to utilize the strengths of the city as a great tourist city. how we can get more folks to come and experience the wonders of the city. maybe they will make their stake here. these panel members have decided to make their stake here. they risked reputation, may be small amounts of money. if they had a lot of money, they may not have had to start this. they have also done it for the right reasons. they want to experience the city in a different way, but one that is in the tradition of san francisco and is reflective of mine, welcoming more people to share in the economy. hopefully the right reasons will create more jobs and get more entrepreneurs involved. i have often said this can be the city for the 100%. everybody can have a chance to fulfill their dreams and make sure they can have a stable income for themselves and their families. i think we are on the
century relations to new 21st century -- to the new 21st century economy. as the mayor said, new research and dialogue are needed. that is why the sharing economy working group and the panel today make so much sense. i want to add one more thing before we go to the panel discussion. these facts may be intellectually stimulating or inspiring, but they do not really speak honestly to my heart. this is what brought me to the sharing economy. what i was after was a new way to live in a way that i felt i could live fully. what excites me about sharing is how it changes every day like for the better. it empowers us. the economic shift in the new businesses of creating and exchanging value is creating a new cultural narrative. it is replacing an old legacy narrative that was toxic. it told us the go live comes from shopping and competition -- it told us the good life comes from shopping in competition, from being free from each other. we are leading ving this because it has pushed us to the brink of extinction. it has enslaved as to debt. it is boring. it is spiritually empty. there is
to travel, but also access to the tourism economy that flourishes in the city. >> i just want to address the technology point really quickly. we try and emphasize the human aspect of this, whether it is on the website or whether it is through the iphone app. other people use a device that we built, that lets you share a car more conveniently by letting the richer unlock the car with their smartphone. even with that, we really try to connect the people who are sharing because a lot of people to accept rentals just with the kit and may never meet the people they are sharing with. we tried to encourage the parties to get to know each other, trying to just display your interest or so many things i can think of that our websites due to show who this person really is. they take their photo. i think part of this is about trust, and it is about letting -- the things we do to encourage trust and the things you do as a responsible member of the sharing community to insure you are doing your due diligence as well. when two people -- first off, the one example i want to bring is that a lot of our ca
in america with a strong economy. let's spending in washington with a balanced budget. energy independence and the repeal of obamacare. thank you for tuning in, and i'm confident at the end of this debate i was earned your vote on november 6 to go to washington as your member of congress, fighting for a bright future for our children and grandchildren. thank you. >> let's get right to the question. the first question i have is for the congresswoman. there's a new proposal to build a stadium and complex for the buffalo bills along the city's waterfront which is presented to the council on tuesday. the teams currently at the stadium expires in 2013. you think a downtown stadium after the proposal patient as a viable alternative? hochul: i've been intrigued by the idea. i'm not sure that's going to be the right location. we have to make sure it's get the least sign. certainly when chris collins is county executive is an opportunity put this to bed and resolve the but we are come down to the 11th hour now and we have to make sure that we take care of ensuring that the buffalo bills stay here i
an argument for economic freedom and talked about the difference between the real economy that mitt romney participated in and succeeded in and the solyndra economy of president where you fund favored enterprises. >> when we come back president obama revamps his stump speech, taking credit for recent positive signs in the economy. but is our outlook that rosy? our panel takes a closer look next. oo....hahaahahaha! oh...there you go. wooohooo....hahaahahaha! i'm gonna stand up to her! no you're not. i know. you know ronny folks who save hundreds of dollars switching to geico sure are happy. how happy are they jimmy? happier than a witch in a broom factory. get happy. get geico. fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percent or more. for a golf getaway. double miles you can actually use... but mr. single miles can't join his friends because he's getting hit with blackouts. shame on you. now he's stuck in a miniature nightmare. oh, thank you. but, with the capital one venture card... you can fly any airline, any flight, any time. double miles you can actually use. what's in your wallet? alec
>> with just 10 days until it is time to pull the lever, the economy is not in full recovery mode. the president is pulling out a 20 page pamphlet that he said will bring the economy back. but if you look inside there is new spending from teachers and infrastructure and energy investments and it is a stimulus plan that will not work. so is this the right or wrong plan to get america working again? hi, everybody. welcome to forbes on fox and go with steve forbes and rick unger and elizabeth mcdonald and john. >> right or wrong policy for america? >> it is a doctor bleeding the patient. it will not cure the patient but make it worse. it takes resources and will cost jobs and every job created with that means two or fewer job private sector. that will not make the economy come back. >> rick, the new economic patriotism. does it mean i am unpatriotic if i don't agree with this. >> i don't think so. >> don't like patriotism with economic plan. >> if you are going to get behind the country you need to get behind some of the thing in the plan. most particularly i like the infrastructure
nominee. while the editors praise president obama's early efforts to revitalize the economy through his stimulus plan, it concluded his record on the economy the past four years does not suggest he would lead in the direction the nation must go in the next four years. joining me now for the politics of weather and everything else is obama campaign senior advisor david axelrod. good morning, david. let me start here with the storm. when you look at virginia where this is likely to be the swing state most affected, does anything worry you about that state being more or less paralyzed by weather for a couple three, four days? >> well, the first thing i think we should say is we're most concerned about people. this storm could affect 50 million americans. the president has been in close contact with fema and dhs and all the agencies that have responsibility here to make sure we're doing everything we can for people, and that's what he is going to continue to do throughout this -- throughout this storm, and in terms of how it affects the election, i don't think anybody really knows. obviousl
benghazi but let that go. we're in the global economy that the new world order which was brought in by the first george bush signed into law by clinton so this is bipartisan, that is our economy and we wrote the rules as far as a global economy for the world to follow and now others are following it. so when we talk about shipping jobs overseas and things of that nature, that is the game. we can't move the goal post, we wrote the rules. and i'll close on the great city of detroit, when we talk about the bailout and which way it should go or bain capital. people have to realize, they have to understand that most of general motors jobs are now presently overseas and the head of general motors who took all the money is now crying that 7.5 million in pay is not enough. the united auto workers are still at entry level being hired in at over $19 an hour that's their pay but their total compensation with healthcare and bonuses comes out to $55 an hour. host: talk to us about the economic situation particularly in mecklenburg county and in charlotte which is a big banking center. guest:
'm ali velshi. recent polls show a dead heat in the presidential election. the economy is still issue number one and the very voters who could decide this election are still undecided. >> i try and keep an open mind. >> i have not heard anything of substance. >> i'm looking for more. i mean we're talking about another four years. >> the questions are all about the economy. >> i'm not up at the white house. i don't see rich people all the time but i see a lot of poor people. >> microcosm of the issues we're facing in america. you can find every one of the major issues that were involved in the great recession. housing. >> when the whole mortgage debacle happened the banks weren't lending any more money. >> social security, medicare. >> it's a life saver for me. >> i want medicare preserved. >> cut other things besides medicare. >> this is a state where a quarter of the population is over the age of 60. that's the biggest proportion anywhere in the united states. so these people are concerned about every part of the economy. they want answers as to who is going to be best for them. >> t
economy and to also improve the economy over where it has been over the last four years. host: we have been talking about the jobs numbers that are coming out today. here are the october numbers. 7.9%, slightly up from 7.8% from september. in issuing 171,000 jobs added in october. this is according to the u.s. bureau of labor statistics this morning. i want to get your quick reaction to those numbers. guest: first of all, that is virtually no change. yes, it is an uptick and it was a down tick the month before, and but unemployment is basically staying around 8%. if you count the people who have given up looking for jobs in this country, we have over 20 million people who are unemployed right now. those are the people that we have to address, there needs, their concerns, and make sure they have a job. by producing 12 million jobs, a lot of these people will be put back to work. if we continue the policies of the last four years, i'm afraid we're going to see the next no. for unemployment is going to be 8%-- next norm will be around 8% and around that 20 million figure. i think we can d

at a turning point which our national debt and liabilities threat on the crush our future. our economy struggles under the weight of government and fails to create the essential growth and employment that we need. at the same time emerging powers seek to shape the world in their image, china in a very different way. this is an election of consequence. our campaign is about big things because we happen to believe that america faces big challenges. we recognize this is a year with a big choice and the american people want to see big changes. and together we can bring that kind of real change to our country. [applause] you know, four years ago candidate obama spoke to the times. he shrinks from it, from characters on sesame street and silly word games to misdirected personal attacks he knows are false. his campaign falls short of the magnitude of these times and the presidency of the last four years have fallen short of the promises of his campaign. four years ago america voted for a post partisan president but they've seen the most partisan of presidents and washington is in gridlock bec
thing on your agenda. what is the president missing? >> needs to understand that the economy is the number-one issue, does not matter if you are woman or man. the problem is we need jobs. >> but he has no plan. this is all about distracting, turning your attention to something that he thinks you will like instead of a job. it's let them eat cake. gerri: jason. >> the frivolity of his campaign. it's binders full of women, bayonets, big bird, and at the top of this message that we are comparing a sexual experience to voting for barack obama. i think the analogy is apropos because another four years of barack obama will be painful. gerri: we have a gallup tracking poll with from the leading obama 51-46%. and yet in the desperation that we are talking about, you luded to it, but we did not say it. the comment from the president about romney calling him of the answer. now he used the word. the president used the word. >> the president of the united states. gerri: what does that tell you? >> what is interesting about all of these, wht they're showing is that the debates, a lot of i
the economy at 2:45 p.m. and look for earnings from mcgraw hill, thomson reuters, "washington post," good lord, madison square garden, the maker of bubble wrap. there's one one to watch. >> who doesn't like bubble wrap. still to come on the program, we'll take a look at what tuesday's election means for america's chances for falling off the fiscal cliff. >>> greece's coalition government on shaky ground. quit because of a scandal over a published list of suspected tax evaders. it they're putting on a unified front before a key vote on austerity measures. >> royal bank of scott land has had a loss of just over 1.4 billion pounds mainly due to a clarm on his own debt. the lender has increased its compensation provision by 400 million pounds and will soon enter negotiations to settle libor investigations. it's also likely to be hit. they reiterated the banking industry must make major changes to it culture. >> i guess in general banks didn't live up to the standards of integrity and have the right cultures. so we're paying some of the sins for that. >> some of the world's biggest banks, more capi

pushing their plans to rev up our economy and we find out it's still not in full recovy mode and more u.s. comnies are announcing major firing, not hiring. the president has his pamphlet and the governor has his overall plan. and more on the pamphlet later. and is governor romney's call right or wrong? i'm brenda buttner, it's bulls and bears. we've got gary b smith. tobin smith. jonas max ferris along with tim la camp and steve murphy, welcome, everybody. okay. the folks at forbes will tackle the pamphlet plan in one hour, fair and balanced. what about the plan to overhaul the tax code. what is it going to mean for jobs. >> i think it's going to be great for jobs. overhauling the taxes is the thing that the governor and hopefully president romney can do. and incents, if that's a word, every individual and corporation out there. provides a path of what they're going to do, what they're going to pay and if it's simplified and overhauled, it will get rid of hopefully a lot of the special interests, which tak the government out of the intervention and provides a clear playing field for eve

"wall street journal" report begins right now. >> here's a look at what's making news as we head into a new week. some encouraging news about the economy. the cross domestic product grew up 2%. the broadest overall measure. economists were expecting a growth rate of 1.8%, the number booming by increase in spending and stronger housing market. the dow falling nearly 250 points on tuesday after poor earnings news an the market was plate later in the week. big multinationals did not farewell. guidance was light. boeing and proctor and gamble beat expectations. among technology and internet company, yahoo! and facebook beat expectations -- the company introducing the ipad mini, smaller and lighter than the full size ipad and listing for $329. two big product launches from microsoft, a new operating system, windows 8, and its new tablet. it's b
economy." here's the cover of the book. professor auerswald, what role does fairplay and economic development? >> guest: well, that's a great question and maybe i'll talk about what role does fear play in our conversation about development and our conversation presence? so when we talk about our reality and share our ideas in the marketplace, we are competing with other ideas. we know three things about marketplace ideas. short-term sells better than long-term. fear sells better than hope. negative sells better than positive that is to say exaggerated flows better than moderated. to receive disproportionate number of short-term narratives of negative, exaggerated stories essentially. so short-term on the negative come exaggerated. that's what's talked about any ideas. we are creatures who grew up in the savanna or environments where we were always subject to threat. so we're looking at that thing is going to hurt us, but we are no longer in those environments. we are in a complex economy, that really relies on organizations to provide basic necessities. so we have to update our th
of the "wall street journal," economy grows at 2% pace. consumers, government spending, powered third-quarter gains, but growth likely to slow down. and that's what we want to talk to you about for the first 45 minutes of this edition of the "washington journal." good morning. today is saturday, october 27. we want to talk to you about your optimism or pessimism about the economy. things getting better? things getting worse? are you doing all right? could you be doing better? we want to talk to you about the economy, your optimism, and your pessimism in terms of your personal economy and not necessarily how you feel the candidates will do, what they might do for the economy once they get elected. 202-585-3881 for republicans. for democrats, 202-585-3880. for independents, 202-585-3882. and you can also reach out to us via social media. the address on twitter, @spanwj. facebook.com/cspan. and email, journal@c-span.org. more from the article this morning from the "wall street journal," economy grows at 2% pace. josh mitchell and refugee write -- -- and jeffrey write -- host: we'll take
begin with the qstion that haunts our time -- why in a nation as rich as america, has the economy stopped working for people at-large even as those at the top enjoy massive rewards? the struggle of ordinary people for a decent living, for security, is as old as the republic, but it's taken on a new and urgent edge. instead of shared prosperity, our political system has now produced a winner-take-all economy. >> how ch is enough, gordon. >> hollywood saw it coming.ho >> the richest 1% of this country owns half of our country's wealth -- $5 trillion. one-third of that comes from hard work, two-thirds cmes frome inheritance. interest interest accumulating to widows' idiot sons. andre what i do -- stock the re estate speculation. it's [ bleep ] >> you got 90% of the american people have little or noet worth. i create nothing -- i own.o we make the rules, pal. the news, war, peace, famine, upheaval -- the price of a paper clips. we pull the rabb out of the hat while everybody else sits there wondering how in the [ bleep ] we did it. now, you're not my ev enough to think we're living a
. burned out workers helping the economy. how does that work? >> if we live in utopia they would skip to work and share cookies on the coffee break. we are seeing even though people are in jobs they can't stand. myself not included. you go to work because you have pay the bills and keep yourosholted going. you are not quiting on yourself and that is part of the american drive that is keeping the going. >> is it good that 63 percent . workers feel stressed out and extreme fatigue. is that good for business? >> no, it is not good that americans are feeling stressed out. we are in bad economic times and have the lowest labor participate . 37 million americans are in poverty out there. but the fact that americans show up and go to work. it is what the greatest generation did in world war ii. i have been over to see what our soldiers are doing. times are tough and merrence are stressed and we have structurally high unemployment and america is n used to that. but americans show up to work and plow ahead. >> more americans say showing up to work is a number one priority. is that good. >> i a
u.s. economy picks up steam thanks to sp. ding by consumers and the government. >> susie: i'm susie gharib. we take you to a wells fargo event in chicago, where housing grants could turn renters into buyers. >> tom: then, from tax hikes to corporate earnings worries,o tonight's "market monitor" guest says investors are facing a cliff of concern. robert stovall of wood asset manament joins us. >> susie: that and more tonight on "n.b.r."!me >> tom: the u.s. economy actually sped up in the third quarter, surprising economists and maybe you too. thanks to a pick-up in spending by conumers, the federal government and the housing c sector, the gross domestic product grew at a 2% annual rate in july through september. that 2% pace was stronger than expected and much better than what the economy experienced in the second quarter. suzanne pratt takes a closer look at the data and what it suggests about the economy the final months of this year. >> reporter: an economy growing at a 2% annual rate is hardly anything to celebrate. sure it could've been worse. but, clearly at three-years post gr
at the economy and worry that it will not get better. mitt romney is saying we do not want four more years like we have just had. president obama is saying we do not want eight years like we had under george bush, and everybody agrees with both of them. but where do you go from here? >> the analysis of what governor romney and his campaign has to do is absolutely right. his campaign has to work on the ground game. likely scenarios -- are not saying probable, but possible is for mitt romney to win the popular vote and barack obama to win the electoral college. we had that once before 12 years ago. vice president gore got about half a million votes and governor bush. but people forget that john carey had 71,000 more votes -- if john carey had gotten 71,000 more votes in ohio, he would have won the popular vote and by 3 million puritan -- 3 million. >> simply because of ohio? >> because of ohio. i think it is a possibility that governor romney will get something like 271 and lose the part of the vote. a goes to the question of whether we should have an electoral college at all. for the obama folks
of wood asset management joins us. >> susie: that and more tonight on "n.b.r."! >> tom: the u.s. economy actually sped up in the third quarter, surprising economists and maybe you too. thanks to a pick-up in spending by consumers, the federal government and the housing sector, the gross domestic product grew at a 2% annual rate in july through september. that 2% pace was stronger than expected and much better than what the economy experienced in the second quarter. suzanne pratt takes a closer look at the data and what it suggests about the economy in the final months of this year. >> reporter: an economy growing at a 2% annual rate is hardly anything to celebrate. sure it could've been worse. but, clearly at three-years post great recession, it should be a lot better. experts call it a side-ways economy, one that is unable to create enough jobs to bring down the nation's stubborn unemployment rate. but, people on the streets of new york have different takes on what a 2% economy means to them: >> it means first of all that anyone trying to look for employment is going have a tough time b
to get this economy soaring again. so who should you choose? we're hours from the election. these men are delivering closing arguments, making their final case for your vote. it's an election about the economy, so let's look at the evidence. jobs. president obama's argument, he's gained back every job lost under his watch. that's quite a feat, but romney says not good enough. >> we're going to create 12 million new jobs and more take-home pay. >> reporter: >> how is that possible, major economic growth. the economy grew at a 2% annual rate during the third quarter, better but not nearly enough to significantly boost hiring. romney will be much more than that to keep his jobs promise. how about housing. prices in some areas are rising, foreclosures slowing, but this is america and what will really get the economy going again is you. consumer spending rising, consumer confidence the best in four years. there's no doubt president obama inherited an economy in crisis, and his supporters will tell you he's turned things around. >> we have made real progress. >> his final argument, he deser
campaign experts. >> i think if you look at the president has done with the economy, it is very far reaching, just across the country women have access to capital to start small business, let's not forget his very, very first bill that he signed in to law was lily ledbetter fair pay act. it's a tremendous accomplishment. i think that shows his devotion and his commitment to women. >> first thing you have to ask is, what are women concerned about today, it's jobs, job security, opportunities for themselves and for their loved ones and in particular for their kidss there a brighter future. this is mitt romney's message to women to all americans. is that he is going to put in to place economic policies that will create growth which will create the jobs, be the ergy to small businesses start growing again. >> we asked the experts whether reproductive rights is a decisive issue for women voters this year. >> it is for the barack obama campaign. they think that's the way they're going to keep their women. suggest that women would vote about who's going to pay for their contraception, that
, and it is still all about the economy. so we'll start with a great panel it to see talk about the american economy, who is actually going on. >>> then, you've often heard that fracking is controversial. why? we have a debate to help you think it through. >>> and do you think you have enough money? what would be enough? we'll have a fascinating discussion on the subject with lord robert skidelsky, britain's most prominent economic historian o how to answer those questions. >>> and why in the world did the nation of mali get more mention this week in the debate than all of japan, mexico, or europe? >>> first, my take. the international monetary fund's latest world economic outlook makes for gloomy roading. growth projections have been revised downward almost everywhere, especially in europe and the big emerging markets like china. yet when looking out over the next four years, coincidentally the next presidential term, the imf projects that the united states will be the strongest of the world's rich economies. u.s. growth is forecast to average 3%, much stronger than that was germany or france, at 1
. what is the toll on businesses and economies? you see businesses in the affected area have no power. so they can't pay their bills. they can't do whatever their business is. i mean it's a big problem. >> it is a big problem. we've heard economists are all over the place. we heard anywhere from 20 upward to 50 billion in damages both from infrastructure as well as lost profits but it's going to take some time for business to get back on its feet. i think you heard mayor bloomberg earlier say, you know, new york is doing well but it took a direct hit and he is expecting it to take a couple weeks. melissa: the other source of fuel that we're watching, of course is gasoline. and the impact on refineries wasn't as great as some thought. there was only one refinery in new jersey that went down. at the same time we talked to some gas station owners experiencing supply shocks. what do you think is the fallout for supply? >> i think the good news unlike katrina, this will be more of a localized event. we lost billion two million barrels a day of refining capacity along the east coast. but, that'
